Just got a phishing email this morning, supposedly from "Apple" about a purchase on my account using my "Apple ID"
Not particularly elegant or believable on its' face.
Still I wonder how many people fall for this type of nonsense and actually panic and click the link, rather than taking a breath and checking through more conventional methods like, banking records or their actual "real" Apple account to see if any such purchase was actually made.

I've gotten a couple of those in the last few weeks. Outlook flagged them as spam, so I didn't see them until I checked my outlook email online the other day.

Yep, I was kinda surprised to see it show up in my inbox.
I forwarded it to (e-mail address removed) before I just deleted it.

I get those on a regular basis, less however than the ones from Amazon. All go automatically in the Spam folder....
Sometimes I even get Emails from Fedex,UPS and Co. asking me to confirm my address.... Yeah, right ! ! !
